New Zealand & Queenstown Wine Tours
New Zealand stands out in the wine world as a unique, blessed with its remoteness, beauty, pioneering spirit and an incredibly diverse range of climates suited to quality wine production. With nearly 1,000 miles from south to north New Zealand spans the latitude 47° in the south to 34° in the north, 30-50° are the accepted latitude bounds where wine can be produced. Within these latitudes New Zealand’s climate ranges from warm maritime to sub-continental in the southern province of Central Otago near Queenstown, New Zealand’s adventure capital.
New Zealand wine production comes from eleven principal wine regions. Exploring each region is easy as most of the regions having their own wine maps, for self driving, as well as quality wine tour operators. Taking a guided wine tour is one of the best ways to discover a region as generally you will be hosted by a wine knowledgeable person as well as benefiting immensely from their local knowledge. Look out for companies that cater for smaller groups and you will have a chance to experience
the best of New Zealand's boutique vineyards.

Read what the New Zealand wine amd tourism Judges had to say:
.. It was my pleasure to have been on your tour. I found it to be one of the most professional that I have been on and there were lots of great little personal touches that set it apart from others. Dr Richard Mitchell, Senior Lecturer in Tourism, University of Otago.
After reading the application and then experiencing the tour, I came away with the impression that you leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of business excellence. In my experience, there are a small group of business owners and operators who have made the very conscious decision to optimise their product and their business. The industry needs more conscientious business- focused operators like you. Tara Druce, Tourism Consultant, Central Otago
